In Taaza Khabar, popular YouTuber Bhuvan Bam’s first web show, life takes unexpected turns for a Mumbai chawl-dweller who manages a pay- and-use public lavatory. A good deed and a resultant miracle give the young man the power to see the immediate future and manipulate his destiny and that of the woman he loves. The series itself could have done with more magic.
The six-episode Hotstar Specials show directed by Himank Gaur, who also helmed Bhuvan Bam’s YouTube series Dhindora, is a comedy-drama that struggles to rise above a hackneyed story involving a poor boy, Vasant “Vasya” Gawde, who seeks a better life for himself, his mother, his beloved and his friends.
A prostitute in love and a gangster with political ambitions are other key figures in the show. The two characters impact the life of the protagonist in ways so obvious that the possibility of any major surprises sneaking into the love-and-lust triangle is very, very distant.
The central conceit of the show may be unusual but, in terms of the characters and the plot details, Taaza Khabar is as stale as yesterday’s news. It has little that could be described as fresh off the oven. The hero makes a killing by betting on cricket matches whose result he is aware of in advance, piles up an obscene amount of wealth and then, unsurprisingly, realises that there is more to life than money.
The screenplay by Hussain Dalal and Abbas Dalal – it hinges on the fact that the protagonist is privy to events that haven’t occurred yet and the advantage that he derives from the clairvoyance that he is endowed with – is thin, laboured and without an iota of genuine insight into what a man stuck in a rut should be chasing.
Taaza Khabar, produced by Bam’s own outfit, is a rags-to-riches story crammed with facile ruminations on the difference between jadoo (magic) and chamatkar (miracle), dhokha (fraud) and yakeen (belief), shraap (curse) and vardaan (blessing) and kismat and karma. The series even as a character named Kismat(Mahesh Manjrekar in a cameo), who preens that he runs a “jugaad ka supermarket“.
It takes Vasya six episodes of roughly 30 minutes each to gather the wisdom he needs but at the end of the arc the audience is none the wiser. The trouble is that all that the series delivers is a bunch of half-baked homilies that never hit home.
Lead actor and producer Bhuvan Bam plunges into the material with all the enthusiasm at his command but nothing that he and the scriptwriters can muster up is enough to offset the deleterious effect of a contrived storyline devoid of genuine inspiration and novelty.
